About the Product:
Cloud Data Management
Informatica Cloud is available in multiple editions to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes. Easy to use Cloud Integration and Data Quality Applications built on the market-leading Platform.
Comprehensive, Unified, Open, and Economical
The rapid adoption of cloud-based applications, platforms, and infrastructure has resulted in more fragmented data scattered across the enterprise both inside and outside of the firewall, increasing the demand for a robust cloud data management solution. To make the most of your company’s investments in the cloud, you need to make sure that the data within these systems is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. It must be available precisely when your users need it. Cloud data must be fully synchronized with data in your on-premise applications and databases, as well as with data in other cloud-based systems.
It’s never been more important to not only remain in control of your data assets, but to be able to access, integrate, and trust them–wherever they are. As the industry-leading data integration company, Informatica is uniquely positioned to help companies that have invested in the cloud to derive the maximum value from their investment.
